The whole point of legal action is to regain quality of life, so we help you long-term as attorneys and short-term as your go-to people.

Determining the Agreement Process for Average Car Accident Settlement Arizona

As a car accident victim, you’ve probably got a ton of other questions like, how long will your claim take to be settled? Or how much will you get as a settlement payment after all the repairs, medical bills, and ongoing issues you might have now are all considered? 

First, you’ll probably have filed a claim with the insurance company which immediately hands over your case to them. Depending on the severity of your accident, an insurance company will have to start an investigation and involve a legal attorney to help establish what happened and who is at fault.

This process can take anywhere between 6 months and 2 years- in some cases even longer- before your settlement will be processed. Once they have reached an agreed amount, your attorney will consult you on the settlement amount and explain how they agreed with the insurer.

From the moment you agree to the settlement, the insurance company will have a certain time to send the money to your account, which they will make clear to you. Typically that can be 5-7 working days once you’ve agreed on the amount before it reaches your bank account.

So I suffered a tragic motorcycle accident leaving me injured and quite unhappy…… also the bike was totaled. This all star law team secured a large settlement for all my suffering. This process was very well advised by an aggressive and determined lawyer. All I can say is now I’m left a very happy man. Thank you karissa for working quick to bring my tragic story to a much warmer end. Just call them! You won’t regret it!

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

What can I say about the Thompson Law Firm? They are AMAZING!! It’s never fun when you need an accident lawyer because you are pretty much in a bad place. Shane and the staff have been wonderful, kept me informed at every step of this process. I would recommend Thompson Law Firm to anyone, in fact, I have referred several friends already!! Thank you Thompson Law Firm for everything you did for me!!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
